East Otter Tail Fair seeking 100 years of history

The East Otter Tail County Fair is less than four months away.

The fair board is working hard to provide great entertainment and something for every one of all ages to participate in.

A big part of a centennial celebration and the most important piece to the puzzle is the history, said Diane Sazama, secretary of the Perham Agricultural Society.

"We would like to create a wall that pertains to history from the past 100 years in our exhibit building," said Sazama. "We are seeking historical photos, newspaper clippings, ribbons, or anything that can be a part of this permanent display that can be enjoyed by fairgoers for many years."

If you have any photos or memorabilia that you can donate, the fair board would appreciate it. The board will not be able to return them so please make copies if necessary. All donations are urged by June 1. Any questions, please call Diane Sazama at 218-346-2054.

Please send photos to Perham Agricultural Society, PO Box 152, Perham, MN 56573.

Dates for the "Centennial Fair" in Perham will be July 22-25.

Highlights from the schedule include a new night for the demo derby, which will be held on Friday night.

Two sessions of tractor pulls are scheduled for Saturday.

The Kids State Sanctioned Pedal Pull will be Saturday at 5 p.m.

New this year: Open Class Beef Show, set for Saturday.

Sunday afternoon will feature a new event, the ATV/Lawnmower Pull.
